Blindspot s2 ep 9

*Spoilers*

OMG.

Phase 2’s in 12 hours! (Except it isn’t.) Jane grabs files and a phone which have “accidentally” been left in her orbit! (Except they haven’t.) Before Kurt and Co can storm in and crack Sandstorm heads, Allie’s hurt in a terrible accident! (Except she isn’t.) Connor phones Kurt! (Except he doesn’t.) And Dr Borden’s a very honest man who would never….

Yeah, I think you know where I’m going with this.

This week’s frantic Blindspot has everyone on the Joint Tat Task Force falling for every trick possible; from Jane not even questioning the sudden and magical appearance of everything she needs to lure the team to Big Trap Farm, to Kurt not registering how much of a coincidence it is that he’s suddenly needed in a hospital across town when he’s just about to do his Big Man on the Task Force thing and Shut. Sandstorm. Down, to Patterson not realising that a charming, handsome, incredibly sweet man who brings you breakfast in bed at the beginning of an episode of procedural drama is either a mole or a goner by the end of it. Or perhaps both.

It’ll take more than a building falling down on them to bring down the JTTF though: Kurt races back to dig everyone out with his bare hands, Kalinda and Reade almost die a couple of times but nope, and if anybody out of the main cast might not make it past this week, well it’s not going to be Patterson is it?

(NB – it had better NOT be.)

Luckily for the JTTF, of course, Sandstorm isn’t quite as rock solid as Shepherd thinks; turns out Jane’s instincts about Roman are at least half right – she can’t turn him, but he can’t wholly turn against her, either, which means bro and sis end up on the run from everyone, and Jane does something so completely ludicrous but so utterly Blindspotty that I would have clapped my hands had they not been busy holding my head at the time. This episode was insane. Super-exciting and fun, but also crazy bonkers. Which is absolutely what you want from Blindspot, so I’m definitely not complaining.

    I thought this was great – after a rather stolid start to the season, the last few episodes have been tremendous fun.

    Has any retconning taken place wrt Borden? (I’m sure, if asked, the writers would say that they’ve totally been planning this since the start of the first season.) Poor Patterson, though. Poor, poor Patterson. Another romantic disaster.

    And are we now a little more on board with Kurtlinda, or do we still think she’s a wrong ‘un? I’m still not convinced, although (as Kay has just pointed out in another thread) it’s interesting to see Kurt with someone who behaves more like an equal.

    Finally, I now can’t remember if we saw Connor or if we just heard him. Either way it’s presumably still open to the writers to make use of him as something more than the new Mr Marshal.

    We only heard Connor at the end so still all to play for on that front. Is he Sandstorm too?

    I agree with you, Borden’s been retconned – maybe it’s different camera angles or mannerisms or something, but there’s been an air of obvious EVIL coming off him from the end of ep 1 if this season in a way there wasn’t last year. I don’t believe the writers decided he was going to be a mole till after season 1 finished, but if they did, I’m guessing they only told the actor after season 1 was filmed and he changed his performance for season 2 with that in mind.

    PS – I still don’t like Kalinda. She’s way too ready to sacrifice Jane/ cut her off from Kurt at every possible opportunity and everything she tells Kurt (particularly when she’s trying to get closer to him) is always way too perfectly-designed to push his particular psychological buttons – she is constantly using everything she knows about him from the Borden tapes to manipulate him. I still think she’s a wrong’un.

    Loved this episode! Cracking fun and interesting relationships. Also hopefully the death of the random Reade storyline as well. I like Kalinda, so their relationship continues to interest me…
